LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson has regained consciousness after three weeks in a coma following a December 1 knockout loss, his girlfriend said on Saturday. Simone “Sisi” God said in a statement that the Haiti-born 41-year-old is awake.
“Despite recent reports being leaked to media, I wanted to clarify that Adonis is awake,” God said. “He is healing from his injury in the private company of his family and his dedicated medical team.
Boxing promoter Yvon Michel had told reporters in Canada on Thursday that the light heavyweight boxer remained unconscious. But his girlfriend said “Adonis is spending time enjoying music and spending time with his family and sends his love and appreciation to you all.”
He was taken to hospital for treatment after a knockout loss to Oleksandr Gvozdyk in Quebec City on December 1.
